Lolo Jones Told To Shut Up About “50 Shades of Grey” Since She’s a Virgin

Lolo Jones, the self-professed virgin, must have expected criticism when she tweeted that her followers should boycott the recently released 50 Shades of Grey film. She made it clear to her audience that God wouldn’t approve of such a film because it glorifies s*x for pleasure and creates the impression that intercourse can solve all emotional pains.

If she didn’t expect a backlash, then she really doesn’t know her audience.

After posting her opinion about the film, she received all sorts of responses, with some Twitter users supporting her stance, while others lambasted her for giving her opinion about the movie as a virgin who “doesn’t know a thing about s*x”. There were also those who called her all sorts of derogatory names, while others referred to her as a “medal-less” Olympian.

But Jones was not cowed. She came out with her proverbial guns blazing and took to Facebook to answer her critics.

First, she registered her displeasure with all the offensive names some critics called her before lamenting how important it would be if women understood their worth and did not allow themselves to be used as s*x toys.

“I just wish every woman would know she is worth more than what this movie depicts. And that every man knows being a gentleman is not outdated,” a portion of Jones’ post read.

Jones asserted that women weren’t created to be treated horribly, nor were men purposed to treat women that way. That belief, according to her, creates the wrong image of true love.

Just to prove her point, Jones shared a Bible verse, Philippians 4:8: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Right below the verse, she says that no one should entertain s*xual violence, premarital intimacy, abuse or violence against women.

“Encouraging acts like that, such as ‘50 Shades of Grey’ can only influence and manipulate what is “normal” as opposed to what is right,” she wrote.

One Facebook user responded: “I have so much respect for you Lolo. I’ve looked up to you ever since I started hurdling in High School. God is using you for something so much bigger than your athletic ability. Keep on keepin on!”

Somehow, Jones silenced her critics in a way. She received overwhelmingly positive comments for stating her stand on the movie. Her voice was heard loud and clear.
